KIS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE VANDALISM OF THE HOLOCAUST MONUMENT AND THE SYNAGOGUE OF LARISA Print

Religious fanaticism and bigotry emanate from the new desecration attacks against Jewish sacred sites in Larissa that occurred on December 3rd, 2020. The vandals used religious symbols to leave the mark of their anti-Semitic hatred on the exterior surrounding wall of the Synagogue of Larissa and the city’s Holocaust Monument, as a statement of contempt towards the sanctity of the sites and devastation of the memory of the Holocaust victims.

The Greek Jewry strongly condemns these hideous attacks. We urge the competent authorities to trace down the perpetrators, arrest them and bring them to justice.

We quote the Vice President of the European Commission Margaritis Schinas who just a couple of days ago stated: “Europe stands firm against all forms of anti-Semitism. Jewish life is and always will be part of European societies and our way of life…”

Zero tolerance to fanaticism, intolerance and anti-Semitism.
